I Need that!

I went to Zest! this past weekend and poked around the array of kitchen tools. After awhile I found myself saying the same thing over and over: I need that. These aren’t things that I merely want, they are things that I need in my kitchen. They are things that will make cleaning easier, pancakes tastier and cakes fancier. So without further ado, I bring you the things that I need.


Candle Candelabra

Bridal showers, birthday parties, retirement parties. There are plenty of reasons to step it up a notch when you’re decorating a cake. The Cake Candelabra made me envision all the parties I could throw in the future and how I could add a touch of class to each and every one. Imagine: Nine glowing candles displayed gracefully atop of a pristinely-iced cake. Pure class.



Cleaning the microwave is the last thing on my To-Do list. Chipping away at all the cooked-on gook is never something I like to do, but Angry-mama  is there to help.  This cute, little kitchen gadget makes it easier to clean, doing most of the hard work for me. Fill her up with water and vinegar, set the timer to five minutes, and watch her go. All I have to do is wipe up when she’s done and I can go out and enjoy the rest of my day.


Tovolo Pancake Pen

I am the messiest when it comes to pancakes. Batter goes everywhere; in my hair, on the floor, on the cat. Naturally I was drawn to the Tovolo Pancake Pen to ease my Saturday morning woes. With this nifty device I can easily squeeze out the perfect amount of pancake batter and ensure my clean up is quicker and easier. Another perk? It comes in Fuchsia, Green and Orange to match my kitchen.


RSVP Onion Goggles

ONIONS. We can all agree they’re the worst. Cutting them usually results in tears, sniffles and a lot of used paper towels. When I caught a glimpse of these RSVP Onion Goggles I almost did cartwheels down the aisle. They are easy to clean, keep the onion fumes from penetrating my eyeballs, and look pretty swank.


SmartPlanet Pizza box

Because we all need one. Seriously, finding a container to fit one slice of pizza into is a feat in itself. With the SmartPlanet Collapsible Pizza Box, you can safely carry one piece of pizza until you’re ready to chow down. When you’re finished, the entire container flattens so it can be tucked away easily.

I hope you find these products as enticing as I do and find some time to search Zest! for the things you need, too.
